This is the original Gouache painting by Neville Dear. The Crossing of the Red Sea is a passage in the Biblical narrative of the escape of the Israelites from the pursuing Egyptians in the Book of Exodus 13:17-14:29. This story is also mentioned in the Qur'an in Surah 26: Al-Shu'ara' (The Poets) in verses 60-67. It marks the point in the Exodus at which the Israelites leave Egypt and enter into their wilderness wanderings. From an unknown issue of Bible Story, probably 1964.
